The right technique for brushing your teeth is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. It is also important to choose a high-quality toothbrush with a design that suits your individual needs and preferences.
Gentle and efficient toothbrushing
If the toothbrush filaments are too hard or if you use the wrong brushing technique, your gums or teeth may be damaged. Choose a toothbrush with soft filaments and a tapered brush head to enable better access to the back teeth. Remember to change your toothbrush when the filaments become worn. A worn toothbrush does not clean your teeth properly.
All TePe's toothbrushes have tapered heads and come in different filament textures. They are efficient, durable and user-friendly.
How to brush your teeth
The right toothbrushing technique is essential to keep your gums and teeth healthy.
Brush the inside, outside and biting surfaces of the teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice a day for at least two minutes. Angle the toothbrush at 45° so that the filaments reach the gum line. Brush with light pressure and small movements.
Angle the toothbrush
After brushing, spit out, but do not rinse, to make the best use of the fluoride's preventive effect. Avoid eating or drinking for two hours after brushing your teeth.
Brush with light pressure
After brushing, take some water in your mouth and swirl the foam between the teeth for 30 seconds. Spit out, but do not rinse, to make the best use of the fluoride's preventive effect. Avoid eating or drinking for two hours after brushing your teeth.
Toothbrushing tips for children
A good toothbrushing routine is important right from the start. As soon as your child's first tooth emerges, it is time to start using a toothbrush. Use a small amount of fluoride toothpaste, the size of the child´s little finger nail.
